Marquette County Sheriff’s Office Warns Residents of New Scam

MARQUETTE, MI – The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a new phone scam. The scammers are using the Sheriff’s Office phone number to pose as staff members.

One scam has the caller telling the victim that their computer has been hacked and money must be sent to fix it.

Another scam has the caller posing as a now retired Sergeant telling the victim there’s a warrant out for their arrest.
